Colchester YAC dig a Roman villa
Members of our Colchester YAC had a superb September meeting on site at a Roman villa in the countryside near Colchester!
Sixteen YAC members were on the site and worked really hard digging and discovering some remarkable Roman finds. For some of the younger members it was their first experience of excavating! The members were also instructed in sieving the excavated soil to try to spot tiny finds that might have been missed in the trench, and they had a go at metal detecting on the spoil heap too.
Huge thanks to the Colchester Archaeological Group, who are excavating the site and hosted the YAC members' morning. It was a great opportunity for everyone involved!
